It is recommended that initial baseline sampling be conducted of all job classes and task material combinations whose exposures are anticipated to approach or exceed 30% of the OSHA permissible exposure level (PEL). When OEHS, Inc. is called in to assess occupational air quality, the first step is to collect background information about the plant or office followed by an initial walk-through. The results of those two steps determine if it is necessary to take specific samples. Testing may include air monitoring for OSHA-regulated compounds such as formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, and testing of dust levels. Once OEHS, Inc. identifies the culprit, or culprits, as is often the case, the Industrial Hygiene team makes recommendations for correcting existing problems.Businesses in the United States are estimated to spend nearly $200 billion a year on costs related to work injuries and illnesses. * Your company needs thoroughly trained and expertly qualified Certified Industrial Hygienists who will provide you with a reasoned approach based on sound science and clear expertise.
